Come view the Outreach Program exhibition which features the work of 76 outstanding New York City area high school students accepted to the four and six week summer art programs.  These full scholarship students were introduced to drawing, two dimensional design, and three dimensional design.  Students were also invited to participate in stop animation and cell animation workshops made possible by guest sponsor, Ava's Smile, a fund created in memory of Ava Hecht, an accomplished and much missed alumna of the Outreach Program of 2009.  In the workshop student teams collaborated for 2 intense weeks producing 10 short animation films under the guidance of guest artist Haisi Hu.

Opening reception will be on August 7 from 4 - 6 PM

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
